Music Through Pictures With Alexandra

Music Through Pictures is a special interview series, in which MEOKO gives an artist a number of images and asks for corresponding tracks in return, highlighting the relationship between art, sound, images and music, and at the same time gaining a fun insight into the musical minds of some of our favourite DJs and producers...
When Alexandra started working in the electronic music industry, she had no intention to become a DJ. Her passion and curiosity for good underground music got her a proper writing job for ClubbingMag, the first Romanian electronic music magazine. She deliberately found out there was much more than journalism and therefore joined the Sunrise Booking Agency and a:rpia:r label to promote some of the most talented Romanian artists. She became an intrinsic part of the Sunrise collective and started to work the decks herself in 2009. Much has changed since, her first gigs abroad took her straight to some of Europe's most esteemed clubs like Club der Visionaere, Robert Johnson, Panorama Bar and Arma17, in which she played alongside big names such as Ricardo Villalobos, Zip, Rhaddo, Cassy, Valentino Kanzyani and Thomas Melchior. Alexandra is a vinyl purist who draws her inspiration from a wide variety of styles and artists, resulting in an own and unique style of DJing. This summer she plays at Sunwaves Festival where she will celebrate Romania's rich musical heritage, "Such a joy we have this festival". Here she throws her heart and soul into our Music Through Pictures series, offering her interpretations to ten striking images through the language of music, matching each one with a track that spring to mind and the reason why.
